Everyone lived their meal. The portions are large. Cindy was able to tell us about items that were not on the menu. She is an example of the quality service you can find at the lake.

Small place with a great smoke smell as you walk in door. Shared sampler platter and was plenty for 2. Ribs, pulled pork and brisket very good. Burnt ends also good. Pit beans and creamy cole slaw excellent side choices. Other family had pork topped baked potato and 2 meat platter with smoked sausage and pulled pork. No complaints from... More

Wow! I had the best brisket I've had at the lake yet, at Half Sauced last week! Believe I could eat it every day! I only tried one bbq sauce, it was the sweet and it was outstanding!

Visited here with my husband for a dinner date. The restaurant itself lacks ambience and is very casual not a place for a nice dinner. The food was pretty good but tasted like we were eating leftover BBQ that was warmed up for us. The side dishes were okay but nothing special. We will try it again sometime and give... More

Over the years, my wife and I have made a habit of stopping at Half Sauced when we arrive at the Lake. We get carry out, taking it home to eat as we open up the house for the weekend. My wife gets the pulled pork sandwich, I get the burnt ends sandwich. We both get the "pit" beans and... More

There are several BBQ establishments at the lake but this is the best! They do not offer a full bar for beverages and the atmosphere is small and quaint, but very good food!

We hit Half Sauced after the lunch hour, so service was great & the wait for food was minimal. My son & I enjoyed their Brunswick stew made with brisket & a tomato base. Excellent! Then, the guys split a sampler platter & we had to box up a slab of ribs to take home. Just a great deal to... More

Enjoyed a great pork chop dinner. Good selection on the menu. Was fast and friendly, close to the outlet mall and other attractions.

I make some pretty good smoked meats but when it comes to brisket, I won't waste my time. I'll go to Half-Sauced!! Not too impressed with their ribs or burnt ends. Good atmosphere, good quality and definitely affordable. Two people shared the combo platter and it was plenty. Personnel were also very friendly and nice. Worth the time.
